Melbourne: Kids are becoming increasingly anxious due to too much time in front of TV and computer screens these days, a new study suggests.According to a British government briefing document from Public Health England, inactive lifestyles are also to blame for the negative impact on children`s wellbeing, News.com.au reported.It said higher levels of TV viewing were having a negative effect on children`s wellbeing, including lower self-worth, lower self-esteem and lower levels of self-reported happiness.Children who spent more time on computers, watching TV and playing video games also tended to experience higher levels of emotional distress, anxiety and depression, it said.Last week, a study found half of all seven-year-olds do not get enough exercise - and girls are far less active than boys.
